Bought this very nice fondue pot on heavy sale at the outlet mall with [livejournal.com profile] beat_the_beaver and [livejournal.com profile] blueeverglades and one of my apartmentmates the other day -- said apartmentmate and I just broke it in.

It came with a wide variety of recipes; we of course did not have the ingredients for any of them and had no desire to go to the store. We did however have a fair amount of leftover cheddar and Gruyere from the New Year's party, raspberry ufo for the alcohol component, a bit of kirschwasser, cornstarch to thicken, and slightly crusty french bread for dipping left from a dinner we cooked several nights ago, plus roommate broke out a bottle of riesling on the grounds that I need to learn to like wine someday and we were informed in Switzerland that fondue must be consumed with black tea or white wine or else.

It was pretty fantastic. I was really skeptical at the amount of fruitiness we were dumping in, between the raspberry beer and the cherry brandy, but it worked very nicely, and somehow the liquid to cheese proportions came out nicely in spite of my halfassed recipe halving. Hurrah! The next trick will be coming up with an excuse to have people over to do it again with an audience... who wants fondue?
